There is no specific advantage of using cristobalite over any other silica extender in paint. Silica does provide more hardness to paint films, but does not provide greater tensile strength.

Are there any benefits in adding Cristobalite (8 µ) or Quartz powder (< 63 µ) to oil paint, whether in form of powder or as a medium (mixed from powder and oil)? Like increased transparency of paint, or durability of paint layer?
